Super easy and quick to make. This is something I whip up on the fly when company shows up at the door without warning. You'll love these little treats, and so will your guests!
Have you ever had one of those days where you are super de duper busy and being pulled in every direction? I know you have. We all have. Am I right?
You finally get home after a busy day and just as you go to slip on your jammies just in time for your favourite TV show (Supernatural- can you say Winchester boys rock my world) the doorbell rings.
You are now doing a check in your head!!
Did I clean today?
Did I do laundry today or is it piled up by the front door for some unknown reason?
Then the OMG do I have anything to feed people moment hits!!
Well folks this is a surefire way to please those unannounced naughty guests who should have called but did not. I mean seriously, who stops in on a weeknight when your favourite show is on anyway.
Have a plan of action in place for emergencies like this. You need to be prepared. Keep your pantry stocked with quick ingredients like graham crumbs, puddings, cookies, and things like that.
Set a code word set with hubby for moments like this. Try *winchester sandwich* as he'll never know what you mean anyway, then that will be his cue to take the rude visitors on a tour of some project you did 3 years ago and never finished.
You now have 5 minutes. This is what you make. And honestly, it seriously takes only 5 minutes.
